how does salary cap work



Let's say a team signs a DE to a $1 million base salary for 3 years. He gets a $1 million signing bonus. Then he gets incentives: $500k for making the pro-bowl, $500k for getting more than 9 sacks, and $500k for playing in all 16 games. I don't hear of a lof ot incentives being built into contracts in the NFL, so is that even used?

How does all of that count against the cap?
